Do You Have Work You Can Take To The Beach?
It’s Beach Week over at One Book Two Book. So home business moms and dads, who need some ideas for the youngsters or who want to relax at the beach, too, stop by and see what we and Camp Weary Parent have in mind.
Taking Your Work to the Beach
When our daughter was small we had a medium sized pool in our backyard. Because I didn’t want her and her cousins there alone, I often sat under a tree and worked on dressmaking or writing tasks. (I had a dressmaking and alteration business at the time and did freelance writing.)
When they were a little older, I often took the youngsters to a nearby river to swim. Since we didn’t have a community pool or lake in our town, many families congregated at the river.
toted along my quilting (my business had encompassed quiltmaking by then), reading and writing. While the five youngsters frolicked in the water and on the sand, I kept up with my work and enjoyed the out-of-doors.
If your business is of the type you can work on away from home, include beach days for the youngsters into it. Do you have any suggestions how to do this?
